My friend and I spent three perfect days here on our recent trip to Mozambique. We reached the beach by flying to Pemba, and it's only about a 30-minute drive from town. Once we arrived, we immediately questioned why we hadn't come sooner. Il Pirata Bungalows are situated on a gorgeous stretch of unpopulated beach, so that alone makes you feel like you've gone to heaven. On top of that Susana and Carlo were such wonderful hosts who treat their guests like family but are not intrusive at all. Susana wanted to make sure that we were comfortable throughout our visit and it was impossible not to be. The staff are also really great and helpful and the meals were all perfect. I couldn't have imagined a better place to stay but only wish that we did not have more time to spend there.
